Here is a Defiance Jack that I picked up. The plane was in wonderful condition just missing a cap iron screw. This is more for the box restoration than for the plane. The old tape came off really easy with a bit of help from a heat gun. It just left a really nasty sticky residue. I just keep wiping and applying heat until no more came up. I didn’t really want to experiment with trying to remove all of the residue.


Here is how I held the sides together while I ran a bead of white elmers glue on the inside of the corner. I also replace some of the paper tape with some stuff I found on ebay. It is the real deal the kind you need to use water to activate.

Nice plane, maybe a new box can be made out of wood? You could transfer the item sticker to the new box also.

You can say a lot about a line of planes when the vintage box is worth more than the vintage plane. Nice restore.

What? ...Really the box is actually a collector’s item?

an original box increases the value substantially on almost any vintage item.
